.. . Weekly Crop Bulletin. '
Fdr ' week ending Monday, June 8,
The past week waa generally quite
unfavorable for the progress of crops
. throughout most of the tate, on ao
. count of the deficiency In temperature
and precipitation. The week was char
acterized by temperatures considerably
below the seasonal are rage, especially
from the 27ih to the 89th, and light
frosts were reported by a number of
correspondents,' chiefly In the elevated
western section,' fortunately with only
slight 'damage it! Jf crops' A The; "cool
weather both checked growth of vegeta
tion and gave young and tender plants
,an unhealthy appearance. Showers oo
, currod from Sunday,, the 23th, tot Tues
day, the 87thri gonerally i. in small
. amounts, the beneficial effects of which
soon ' disappeared. Damaging hall
storms accompanied the rainfall on the
85th In a few western connUoa,' notably
Henderson. A warm, generous aln is
now greatly needed everywhere, 'as up
lands are suffering rather seriously from
drought. 'The week was very favorable
for work, and cultivation continued ac
tively; tbo planting of most crops has
no been completed- ; , "
Cotton suffuied considerably from the
cool weather, and many plaitls have be
come yellow! or sickly, in appearance,
hence growth has been Very slow during
the week; chopping cotton Is approach
ing completion i s, account of' dry
weather much late planted Is not yet up.
Corn has also suffered; but td a muoh
less extent from drought and cool nights
generally the crop is In good condition
and most of it has received second culti
vation; ravages by worms are reported
by a large number ot correspondents.
The outlook for tobacco Is not good 1 at
1 present; growth was checked this week,
so that recently set out plants have not
secured a good start; poor stands, irregu
larlly In growth, and damage by Insects
contribute to the unfavorable prospect
for this crop. While a number of reports
indicate that the heads of winter : wheat
are filling well, the crop 1a ripening so
low that much ean hardly be cur; harvest
will soon begin; chinch bugs are damag
ing wheat. Spring oats are beginning
to suffer from drought. at the most criti
cal period of growth, while beginning to
head. Peanuts seem to be . doing, fairly
well. Gardens where properly worked
... are n good condition, and' vegetables of
all kinds have become ..abundant." Dig
ging Irish potatoes is underway, with In
. dlcations for a somewhat Inferior yield;
Fruit !s stil falling considerably. A full
crop of blackberries Is promised. , The
strawberry season Is about over. .

up broken down systems and make the

Dwarf apples nre ornamental rather

' The quince grows so readily from
cuttings of about a foot In length that

The Value of good seed is seen teheh
the harvest Is gathered. This Is true In
the garden as well as In the field,
. It the garden is laid out In an oblong
shape, all the better, as In this form It
will be made convenient to cultivate

Bark burning of cherry trees is gen

ful man, aged 80, and Bet .e Judd. Den
nis was found dead by the well in his
yard Sunday afternoon. He and his
wife and sister were on the porch of the
house when a noise was heard at the
well, some one " havin "released the
bucket, which fell with a great noise
Dennis went out to see what was the
matter. At the well were the above
named negroes. Horton says Dennis
told him to be careful, and in an Instant
fell dead. Two hours later a doctor was
called to see Mrs. Dennis, whom the
deatb had prostrated. He looked cas
ually at Dennis' body, and says the
throat was bruised, and that there were
other bruises on the temple; nose and
cheek and that both ears were scratched
There was a large log beside the well.
The coronor exhumed the body today

X took five bottles of Peruna, and feel
better now than I have for five years.
I have doctored with other doctors off

In thanking yon for yonr free advice

Mr. J. W. Prltchard, Wolf Lake, IniL,
writes i '
"lam pleased to say that I have been
cured of catarrh of the stomach by Pe
runa. I could hardly eat anything that
agreed with me. Before I would get
half through my meal my stomach
would fill with gas causing me much
distress and unpleasant feelings for an
hour or two after each meat But,
thank to your Peruna, I am now com
pletely cured, and ean eat anything I
want to without any of the distressing
symptoms. I can now enjoy my meals
as I need to do, and it is all due to Dr.
Hartman and his wonderful medicine,
"It has been one year since I was
cured, and I am all O. K. yet, so I know
I am cured." J. W. Prltchard.
Dyspepsia is a very common phase of
summer catarrh. A remedy that will
core catarrh of one location will cure it
anywhere. Peruna cures catarrh wher
ever located. That it is a prompt and
permanent cure for catarrh of the
stomach the above letters testify.
If yon do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving
full statement of your case and be will
